as well said delinquencies fell in december and chargeoffs continue to rise and bank of america, you see it in the bottom of your screen down 3% as well. even though intel had better-than-expected earnings and it's a sell on the news picture today because you've seen the semiconductor index weigh on the major averages as well and some of those chip names like texas instruments almost to the downside. teradyne as well. amd is bucking the trend even though it's a fractional move to the upside. fertilizer stocks i continue to watch those. we'll continue to watch both of those shares. agrium to the down side by more than two bucks and potash is having a pretty good day as the price target was raised over it, rbc. take a look at some of the office supply companies as they're focused around a modest recovery, if you will in the job market, and i mean modest. it was upgraded by j.p. morgan to overweight from neutral. in the labor market you've seen staples and office depot rising on the back of that as well. schlumberger was raised to a buy over at jefferies and then kellogg was upgraded to a b

in america i would rather be living in with having lost this job in texas, because i know that the programs that you all have put in place, i'll be able to find that job very soon. and that's the type of can-do spirit that you see in the state of texas. we lead the nation in the production -- in the development of jobs. while america was losing 3 million jobs because of the washington type of spend it all, spend it now approach. texas was gaining almost 100,000 jobs. just this last november, and october. we created jobs in the state of texas. that's what people want to see. low taxes, a regulatory climate that's fair and a school workforce. they picked texas as the number three place in america for small businesses. that came out two days ago. creating that environment for people to have a job. single most important thing a governor will do. >> governor, and by the way 100,000 jobs you said you create under your administration but we lost well beyond that amount, correct? >> no, sir. we created more jobs from november of 2007 to november of 2008. texas created more jobs than the rest of the
across america, in port-au-prince, haiti, residents by the thousands have been trapped for more than two days, trapped and crying out in many cases that they are dying and then the crying stops. and here across america we are seeing some of the most disturbing pictures yet of the horror in haiti. we have to warn you they are graphic. there are so many human remains to bury they need a new cemetery. we are seeing it corpses in the street and piled up outside a morgue. haiti's president reports they have already buried 7,000 victims in one mass grave. tonight, we're also seeing pictures of looting as survivors are scrambling for supplies they can get for themselves and their family. the red cross estimates the earthquake killed as many as 50,000 human beings and left another 3 million injured or homeless. the local government estimates are much higher. but they are all stressing they are just estimates. they have no way to know how many have already died or how many more will die before rescuers can reach them. also getting our first look at the moment the quake struck. look at this. keep
be so strong? action today in wells fargo and bank of america, unlike stocks here, lady gaga plays with an open hand, not a poker space, makes me suspicious of the bear argument, real estate and credit, right? how often do we check in and hear how horrible those are? and it's true. wells fargo has a tremendous amount of the variable rate mortgages at the heart of the shadow inventory numbers. wells fargo is concentrated in california, the worst market. defaults during the period that it underwrote most of the paper, bank of america, a slew of this bad paper. so here's the issue as i see it. this is what's key for you. if the stories of shadow inventory from foreclosures are 100% right, if the default stories are 100% right, then there's simply no reason, right, no reason these stocks are going higher. none. the stocks should be going down every day, they should be lower, much lower. i don't care how much capital they have to raise. it's just not logical if the horror stories are right. so then i come back to this logic, spock. how long is the market? i know for short periods, the m
of america, a real laggard, down. chip stocks, this is classic sell on the news as intel had much better than expected earnings after the bell yesterday, though texas instruments, teradyne and advanced microdevices which was positive earlier in the session has since turned negative. let me show you commodity stocks as well because it's a significant story. gold itself was down a dollar today. excuse me, oil was down $1 and as a result, those stocks and other commodity-related stocks are to the downside as well. let's head up to the nasdaq now and mike huckman. >> thanks, scott. in addition to the strocker dollar, the reason we're now 1.3% or almost 30 points lower here at the nasdaq is because the chips are down. we're talking a 3% loss in the philadelphia semiconductor index. of course, it's intel that is leading wait lower here, down 2% right now despite the fact that the company hand ily beat the street. novellus is down 3.5%. the lone exception in the chip sector is qualcomm, perhaps on a relatively bullish shoutout on "squawk box" this morning. then we have the j.p. morgan-led weakness i

as we embark on the long-term recovery from this unimaginable tragedy. the united states of america will also forge the partnerships that this undertaking demands. we will partner with the haitian people. and that includes the government of haiti, which needs our support as they recover from the devastation of this earthquake. it also includes the many haitian americans who are determined to help their friends and family. and i've asked vice president biden to meet in south florida this weekend with members of the haitian american community, and with responders who are mobilizing to help the haitian people. we will partner with the united nations and its dedicated personnel and peacekeepers, especially those from brazil, who are already on the ground due to their outstanding peacekeeping efforts there. and i want to say that our hearts go out to the united nations, which has experienced one of the greatest losses in its history. we have no doubt that we can carry on the work that was done by so many of the u.n. effort that have been lost, and we see that their legacy is haiti's hope
